Tying the Knot
It’s so great that Burton Library has been a part of the CLEVNET consortium all these years because I can get books by authors that Burton does not own. Tying the Knot by Elizabeth Craig is one of these books and the fifth Southern Quilting Mystery Series. Two of the reasons I started reading these mysteries is the connection with quilting and a Corgi named Noo-noo in each of the books (I quilt and own a Corgi). I really enjoy the way Elizabeth weaves the story and keeps you guessing till the end.
Since Beatrice moved to Dappled Hills a few years ago to be closer to her daughter some murders have occurred. Beatrice often finds the body and has an uncontrollable impulse to find the culprit. She is great friends with her neighbor who happens to be married to the chief of police (very helpful in solving mysteries). In this book the sister of her “boyfriend” and pastor Wyatt is getting married. The murder happens during the reception and goes un-noticed till after the party is over. If you enjoy soft mysteries, you’ll enjoy this author; you might want to start with the first book Quilt or Innocence, they were all great.
